Christina Sickbert – Director/Stage Manager
It has been an absolute pleasure working with this amazing cast, crew, and creative team to bring this holiday tradition back to the main stage of Woodstock Arts. A Christmas Carol tells the story of Ebenezer Scrooge and his path from a cold-hearted miser to a lovable and charitable man. Scrooge is brought on this journey by three ghosts, who show him the spirit of Christmas and how it has, is, and will be around him if only he would open his eyes to see it. This musical adaptation of a cherished and classic story highlights, not only Scrooge but most importantly, the people around him throughout his lifetime. It is through seeing the love and joy of people around him that he truly understands the meaning of compassion and love…and Christmas. I hope you enjoy the production and Scrooge’s journey!
